NASA’s Cassini Spacecraft Gets Into The Most Dangerous Dive So Far!

NASA’s Cassini spacecraft finished its sixth and most dangerous dive between Saturn and its rings on May 28. This plunging has been described as one of the most dangerous so far. That’s because the spacecraft made it’s direct dive through the D ring of the ringed planet which is exceedingly faint and located...

What is Dark Energy?

Dark energy is an unknown form of energy which is hypothesized to permeate all of the space. It tends to accelerate the expansion of the universe. So, we basically don’t really know what is it. In 1929, American astronomer Edwin Hubble studied exploding stars known as supernovae to determine that the universe is...

What Exactly Are Black Holes And How Strong Are They

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that even light can’t get out. That’s because the matter has been squeezed into a tiny space. Because no light can get out, people can’t see black holes. They are invisible. Space telescopes with special tools can help find black holes. The special...

Understanding The Global Warming

The global warming is really happening and it’s very sad. Over the past 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. So, what is global warming? Global warming is the gradual heating of Earth’s surface, oceans, and atmosphere. Over the past 50 years, the average...

What is the Origin of the Universe Based on Science?

The most trusted theory of our universe’s origin centers on a cosmic cataclysm-the big bang. The theory describes how the Universe began and evolved since that time. So, the Big Bang started about 13.7 billion years ago. Since then, the Universe is in a rapid expansion and still evolving. This theory was born from the...

Frozen Sperm Stored in Space, Gave Birth to a Healthy Baby Mice

Scientists prove that a frozen mouse sperm, flying around the ISS for nine months, can make babies. The frozen sperm had temperatures of -139° Fahrenheit (-95° Celsius). At an altitude of 250 miles, radiation is more than 100 times stronger than on Earth. So, because of this reason, scientists from the University of...

What is the Cosmic Microwave Background?

The Cosmic Microwave Background, or CMB, is a radiation that fills the universe. We can detect it in every direction. So, this radiation started around 400,000 years after the Universe began. That may sound like a long time on human timescales, but it really is the blink of an eye when compared to the age of the Universe. The...

TRAPPIST-1 and the March of Science

A really remarkable event in science is the discovery of the TRAPPIST-1 exo-planetary system. That’s a good example of how an armada of telescopes can work together to chart new frontiers in the cosmos. Seven Earth-sized planets have been found in resonant orbits around a faint star much smaller than the Sun. The new...

This is how Brain-Computer Interfaces Work

Technology is increasingly growing alongside our understanding of the human brain. Thus, we move closer to making some awesome science fiction into reality. The development of a brain-computer interface (BCI) could be the most important technological breakthrough in decades. Imagine transmitting signals directly to...
